Hôjô Takatoki was the 14th and last of the Hôjô clan regents (shikken). He was forced to commit suicide during the 1333 fall of Kamakura to pro-Imperial forces led by Nitta Yoshisada on behalf of Emperor Go-Daigo.
Takatoki became regent in 1310.
The site where Takatoki and other members of the Hôjô clan killed themselves can still be found today, a few tens of meters from the grave of Minamoto no Yoritomo, but Takatoki was afterwards entombed at the Zen temple Engaku-ji founded by his grandfather Hôjô Tokimune.
